Reviewed on

First, a disclaimer - I haven't played here recently, but I did want to review the course, as I believe it to be a golfing gem.

So, to the golf. Though this is a flat, housing-community course (though one of the most miss-friendly routings of this type I've ever seen), don't let the cosmetics (or, lack thereof - no mountain vistas, etc) distract you from the fact that this is one of the most engaging courses you can play.

Beginning with hole 1, right through hole 18, this course offers the most incredible array of shot options, with most holes offering the golfer the choice of anything from a mid-iron to driver off the tee - and any choice can be the right (or wrong!) one. This course rarely takes driver out of your hands, but nor does it insist you hit it. Where most courses have an occasional risk-reward hole , this is the running theme at Arrowhead and it is done in such an elegant manner that most "safe" decisions merely costing you the opportunity to hit a flip-wedge into the green - you're probably looking at a 9/8/7-iron in, instead.

Coupled to the incredible layout, Arrowhead has consistently had some of the most consistent greens I've ever played. The greens have some pretty good undulation, without being unfair - this is important, given how fast these guys can get them rolling!

So, in summary, Arrowhead is a golfers golf course - it doesn't wow you with huge elevation changes or cityscape views, but it presents so many options that you can play back-back-back rounds there and feel like you've played 3 different courses. The 18th hole, which features heavily in the course photography, epitomizes the course design - water from almost-tee to a peninsula green (though not an island, you will have to cross water to get to the green, sooner or later!), where a 250-ish drive, in the right spot, can leave you in the most horrible of spots, decision-making-wise - you'll have about 200 yards to the hole, almost all of which is over water, or you can knock a 7-iron up the fairway, for a wedge over the water onto the green.

Saddle up and hand me my 5-iron!
